Do You Believe In Magic       (John Sebastian)

Do you believe in magic
In a young girl's heart
How the music can free her
Whenever it starts, and it's magic
If the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old time movie
I'll tell you 'bout the magic, and it'll free your soul
But it's like tryin' to tell a stranger 'bout-a rock 'n' roll

If you believe in magic
Don't bother to choose
If it's jug band music
Or rhythm and blues, just go and listen
It'll start with a smile
That won't wipe off your face, no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tappin' and you can't seem to find
How you got there so just blow your mind

If you believe in magic
Come along with me
We'll dance until morning
'Til there's just you and me, and maybe
If the music is right
I'll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we'll go out dancin', baby, then you'll see
How the magic's in the music and the music's in me

Yeah
Do you believe in magic, yeah
Believe in the magic of a young girl's soul
Believe in the magic of-a rock 'n' roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free, ah...
Talkin' 'bout magic
(do you believe like I believe)
Do you believe in magic
(do you believe like I believe)
Do you believe, believe
(do you believe like I believe)
Do you believe in magic
(do you believe like I believe)
